Greetings Friends, Family, and Neighbors!
IT'S The Dawn Of A New Day!
IT WAS A GREAT 2016 FOR LIFESOURCE!
We had a busy life-changing year as a family, despite some setbacks challenges. I gotta say, I do miss my Sunday morning pancake menus. Thank God the scales miss them too! The good news is that we were blessed to continue sharing the Gospel in deeds, even more than in words, this last year. As my Muslim friends would say, "Allahu Akbar!" (GOD IS GREAT!).
LifeSource Gospel Sharing In 2016:
We paid living-space rent, including for motel and hotel rooms for individuals and families in dire and desperate situations.
We supplied bedroom furniture (whole beds, pillows, & coverings), and kitchen & bathroom accessories for adults and children.
We also purchased clothing and basic necessities for families and individuals.
We purchased groceries and literally hundreds of meals for families and individuals throughout the year.
We assisted with travel and support services for funerals and memorial services.
The Pastor and members visited homes and hospitals at all hours to share and bring comfort and support.
It is important to remember that the least important thing we do in sharing The Gospel is TALK to people!
There was a guy named Jesus who once said "Let your light shine so brightly in the world that people will SEE Your Good WORKS (Not WORDS). SEEING your DEEDS they will then glorify Your Heavenly Father."
Jesus models and argues that "The Gospel" Is "DEEDS" backed up by words.
Today, far too many 'Christians' and 'churches' model "The Gospel" as words, words, music, words, and occasionally deeds.
Honestly, nobody is really wondering why most of the San Francisco Bay Area is ungodly and anti-Christian. Too much talk, not much action, and very little light. Just sayin… We can all do it differently in 2017. God Is Able.
So Now It's 2017!
LifeSource Christian Fellowship is in a new facility in which we are engaging and sharing with Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous as partners. They are ground-floor in their ministry and they are sharing "where the rubber meets the road".
In addition to counseling and peer support services, LifeSource is committed to partnering with them to provide the same services and assistance we provided in 2016, at the exact same level. Our goal isn't just to Talk Light, but to Be light, and to share light, with hands-on up to the moment ministry and support. Clearly God is continuing to bless our desire to meet needs and change lives with actual opportunities to do so.
But Wait! There's More In 2017!
We are planning to engage in post-incarceration support by supplying basic necessity backpacks to newly released persons. Just sharing some light.
Through a partnership with Lighthouse Ministry, LifeSource will be providing monthly food and grocery sharing beginning in February.
